Fave Fall Finds: Boots Edition

 

Whether you have small feet, wide feet, thicker calf muscles, or larger ankles…there is a boot out there for you!

So, it finally feels like fall…wait…scratch that…it’s STILL summer.

After going through a major heat wave in September…I’m talking about 90+ degrees in Michigan, we’re still in the 80’s and it’s October! This is making it feel like a very long summer.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for getting some vitamin D but I’m ready to add a few layers. 

The one thing this weather won’t stop: me from wearing boots! That’s riiiight, it’s boot season whether the temperatures says it or not. 

And since it’s that time of the year, I’ve been scouring the stores to find the perfect pairs to share with you guys!

Shopping for Wide Calf Boots: A How-To Guide


 ‘Tis the season for boots!

 

Whether you like them short or tall, pointed or round, there’s a pair for every mood!

 

Some of us curvy girls have a hard time finding boots with a wide shaft to fit our calves or even the width of our feet. I’ve been lucky enough to fit into medium width and regular shaft boots, thank goodness for something positive in the gene pool but several of my fellow curvy girls aren’t so lucky. Shopping for boots can become a tedious and overwhelming task for anyone. To help ease the stress of that shopping trip, I’ve found a few of the trendiest, stylish, and most comfortable fitting boots.

 

See the 10 pairs of boots and booties that are ALL available in wide widths and/or wide calf sizes.

 

 

Walking In A Winter Wonderland

 

 

 

1. Route 66 “Tahlia” Boot ~ Kmart

 

2. Naya “Apollonia” Boot ~ Nordstrom

 

3. Bandolino “Callan” Wide Calf Boot ~ Zappos

 

4. Isaac Mizrahi New York “Arno” Lycra Stretch Boot ~ Nordstrom

 

5. Bella-Vita Walker Brown Herringbone Boot ~ Zappos

 

6. Oxford Lace-Up Booties ~ Torrid

 

7. Sam Edelman “Petty” Booties ~ Nordstrom

 

8. Sole Society “Helena” Booties ~ Nordstrom

 

9. BC Footwear “Building Blocks” Booties ~ Nordstrom

 

10. Tildon “Flawless” Booties ~ Nordstrom

 

 

The average shaft size for knee high boots range from 13-15cm. Most boots that are designed to fit wider calves and 16,17cm and above. If you aren’t sure how your feet and calves will fit into a new pair of boots, simply use a flexible tape measure (like this one here) and measure the circumference of the widest part of your calf. If you plan on wearing your jeans or pants tucked into the inside of those new boots, make sure you give yourself enough room. For example, if your calf measurement is 15 without jeans, WITH jeans it’s should be a centimeter or two larger. Therefore, a regular pair of knee high boots won’t fit comfortably.

 

If you’re going to be out there “Walking In A Winter Wonderland”….be sure to keep your feet warm!

 

UPDATE: #9 BC Booties are completely sold out BUT here is a similar pair ~ NaturalSoul by Naturalizer $60 ~ Kohls

Notice anything different? Ok, ok, I’ll just tell you! Curves And Coffee got a tiny facelift! Uber excited about the new digs. You guys know I’m a perfectionist and a lotta OCD soooo changing my mind is sort of my thing. Well, changing colors are my thing. That also explains why I buy more hair dye than a platinum blonde!

 

Anywho…

 

While fashion season is going on around us, it’s been hard to focus my brain on one thing at once. Hence this delayed post for 30 Days 30 Shoes…so sorry stylish sweets. Never fret, I’m here to make your wishlists longer with lots of great shoes that are *drumroll* under $100!!
